Perform the full defragmentation, it perform to increase the speed by rearranging files that stored on your hard disk. It is also recommended to do at least twice a week. Upgrade ur machine(like new RAM,New fan etc)

actually, that's horrible advice......that will kill a HD rather quickly, as every time you defrag it, it stressed the HD out. Best to check it every quarter or so, and let the OS decide when to defrag.

also, mechanotrophic, I've edited that URL out of your reply, as it's quasi-spam.

Thanks,

Click Start - Run, then type in

%temp%

and then click OK.

Click Start - Run, then type in

c:\windows\temp

and then click OK.

Once those 2 temp folders appear and you can view their contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside them.

If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal behavior. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.

If a massive number of files are being deleted, the computer may appear to "hang". Be patient and wait for the deletion process to finish.

After it's done, restart the computer.

How is the computer running now?

Well, now it took about 6 minutes 20 seconds till the activity light settled down and everything was up. After 3 1/2 minutes the desktop was there but no icons. Is there any kind of app that will open as soon as the desktop comes up and show me what it is doing? Or app that can create a log file of what is happening during that time?

Right-click an empty space on the desktop, then make sure that

Arrange Icons By - Show Desktop Icons

is selected.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Have you considered doing a clean reinstall of Windows XP SP3 and getting a fresh start?

Sometimes, that's the best option.

Yep, its selected. I don't know, I'd have to re-install all the same programs so wouldn't the result be the same? Does that really improve startup time? The last time I started fresh was with my last h/d install about 3 years ago.

I'm not there to see your computer, so I have no way of knowing what's happened to it during the past 3 years since the hard drive was replaced.

Problems and clutter can accumulate over time and cause slowness and other issues.

The best way to resolve it is to get a fresh start.
